"Then... What about the one million you promised to give my family for my service?"

Joey stared at David anxiously, afraid that he would outright refuse to pay him.

"Don't worry. The money will be transferred to your family's bank account tomorrow. Of course, what you say must be true, or else...We will take it back if we don't find Shirley in that place." David spoke with great solemnity.

Joey's heart leapt with joy, as she thought, 'Jim wouldn't dare to lie to me.'

"The girl must be there!" Joey hesitated for a second, then nodded at the assistant with confidence.

Having reached the end of their discussion, David secretly slipped Joey a pack of cigarettes and walked out of the room without uttering another word. He hastened back to the Shinning Company.

"Mr. Lu, may I come in?" The sudden knock on the door drew Charles' attention. With his permission, David entered the room as Charles put away the files and grabbed his jacket from the hanger.

"Oh, you're here. I was just about to ask you if the location of Shirley was accurate." Charles looked like he was in a hurry to leave as he rolled up his sleeves.

"Yes. The information came from Jim himself, so there no chance for it to be inaccurate."

"Okay, I'm heading there now to find Shirley. You take care of the company affairs while I'm gone. Just send me a message if something goes wrong."

Charles grabbed his mobile phone from his desk on his way out as soon as he finished talking.

"Mr. Lu, you should bring some people to accompany you. I worry about your safety, especially since there is a man watching Shirley. We don't know anything about him. He could be armed." David wanted to make sure Charles wasn't walking into a trap all by himself.

"I don't have time. I have to go there right now. You arrange something and send them over as soon as possible." Charles

efore. He didn't have it in him to kill that girl. In the past few days, he noticed how red her eyes had gotten from holding back her tears. It filled his heart with pity.

But what else could he do? Although he didn't want to kill her, he couldn't just wait here and do nothing for the rest of his life, either. He was desperate and he needed to come up with a plan very soon.

"Uncle, may I have some water? I'm very thirsty." Shirley stared at him with eyes filled with hope.

Faced with her gaze, he couldn't help but take out a bottle of water. He opened the cap with a quick twist and poured water into her mouth.


Shirley gulped down as much as she could and coughed out the rest. Water ran down from her mouth and wet her dirty clothes.

The man stopped at once and let out a heavy sigh.

'This little girl is troublesome, like a delicate flower. I have to feed her with water carefully.' That man looked up into the ceiling helplessly and went back to his thoughts again.

Suddenly, he heard the sound of a car engine outside.

'What? Have the Lu family already found us? This is a remote area in the middle of nowhere. People wouldn't be here unless they had a purpose. They must have come to save the girl.'
