Chapter 776: Do I Look Like I’m Short Of Money?
Su Yang replied, “Sure, go ahead. As long as it’s convenient, I’ll tell you the truth.”
Young Master Ying was silent for a while, as if he was pondering what to say.
However, after some deliberation, he said, “I won’t ask you then.”
At that moment, Su Yang was confused.
‘What is Young Master Ying trying to do? He said that he wanted to ask something, but he didn’t want to in the next second. Could he be playing with me?’
Just as he was thinking about this, Young Master Ying said, “You should know Wang Jiang who Wang Jiang is, he’s a big shot who always appears on Zhejiang Province’s TV.
“He has a son called Wang Jue, who came to Shanghai not long ago to um… Play.
“Then, he disappeared.
“So, now, Wang Jiang is furious about this, and he’s using all kinds of methods to find his son. He also said that nothing must happen to his son, because if something does, he won’t let the culprit go.
After listening to Young Master Ying, Su Yang asked, “What does this have to do with me?”
There was silence on the other end of the phone for a while, and then Young Master Ying suddenly laughed out loud.
After laughing, Young Master Ying said, “Actually, it has nothing to do with you. I was just a little bored, so I called you to gossip.
“Maybe you don’t know much about Wang Jiang. Since we’re talking about gossip here, let me tell you something. He’s the second generation of the Wangs in Zhejiang Province. He grew up in Zhejiang Province and has deep roots there…
“Many people have thought very highly of him, thinking that he’s someone who can do real work and is brave.
“Also, according to my father, when he was developing, the people who stood in his way would mysteriously cause something to happen. Then, he would be cleared a smooth development passage.
“Anyway, he’s… Not a simple character.
“As for the Wangs, they are even more remarkable. After all, Old Man Wang is still alive, so he’s a senior that no one can ignore…
“This time, in order to investigate Wang Jue’s matter, they also sent the most experienced police officers in Zhejiang Province to investigate. Because the matter is very important and it involves the Wangs, Shanghai has also given a lot of support.
“Be it road surveillance, bank information, phone records, etc… Everything has been provided.
“After all, they obviously won’t give up until they get what they want.
“I hope Wang Jue is still alive, because if something happens, something big might really happen.”
After rambling on about Wang Jiang and the Wangs’s information, Young Master Ying heaved a sigh of relief and said, “Alright, Young Master Su. I’m just calling to gossip with you, so I won’t disturb you anymore.”
Su Yang nodded. “Interesting gossip indeed. Thank you, Young Master Ying.”
With that, the two hung up.
After hanging up the phone, Su Yang’s face darkened. The reason why Young Master Ying called him was simple. To put it bluntly, it was to inform him. Evidently, the Wangs had suspected Su Yang for some reason or even found out about him. Hence, Young Master Ying gave him a call after hearing about the matter and revealed some information to Su Yang.
As for the question that Young Master Ying wanted to ask, it was obvious that he wanted to ask whether Su Yang had anything to do with Wang Jue’s disappearance.
In the end, Young Master Ying decided not to ask anymore because it was too sensitive.
Hence, Su Yang remembered this favor in his heart.
Su Yang looked at the panel in front of him and thought to himself. ‘Even though Young Master Ying didn’t ask about it, his reaction is enough for a smart person like him to know the answer…’
At that moment, at Ying Group in Jin Mao Tower, Shanghai…
Young Master Ying stood in front of the glass wall with a frown. He was holding a glass phone whose unit value had been hyped up to 81,000 yuan, and his face was filled with conflict.
Just as Su Yang thought, Young Master Ying was smart enough to guess the truth behind Wang Jue’s disappearance.
After all, if it wasn’t Su Yang who did it, Su Yang wouldn’t have been so calm and collected. He wouldn’t have listened to Young Master Ying talk about the Wangs and even thanked him.
Everything Su Yang had said was his gratitude towards Young Master Ying for the message.
Hence, Young Master Ying rubbed his temples, feeling a headache coming on.
‘This “buddy” of mine is really ruthless… He’d arrest people without a single word, and when he does… He would kill them.
‘Is he a “noble”, or a killer?
‘However, thinking about the way the big families in the country do things, hmm… They all seem to do the same thing.
‘The only difference is that they would only target ordinary people, while Su Yang would deal with whoever he met.
‘Perhaps this is the confidence from a top family?’
At that thought, Young Master Ying could not help but recall the destruction of the arrogant Fengs. ‘Su Yang has always been involved in that incident.
‘If the Fengs do not care about their status, the people backing Su Yang up shouldn’t be weaker than the Wangs. After all, I doubt that the Wangs wouldn’t uproot the Fengs so easily.
‘Now that I think about it like this, it seems like there’s a reason why Su Yang is so lawless. Well then, I guess I don’t need to worry about anything…
‘In that case, the only problem would be the pressure Dad’s under.
‘After all, it’s only the Wangs who don’t dare to put pressure on that particular Shanghainese. However, they haven’t got a problem pressuring my Dad.’
At the thought of that, Young Master Ying pondered. ‘Eh? What does pressuring my Dad have to do with me? It’s not as if I’m the one being pressured, is it?
‘Plus, isn’t this how Dad has been living over the past few decades?
‘Anyway, it’s just a little pressure, so it’s not as if there would really be any problems if he suffers a little for a short time. After Su Yang and the Wangs are done with their dispute, everything would be back to being relaxed again.’
At that thought, Young Master Ying suddenly felt relieved.
With the good mood of having seen through everything and knowing the truth, Young Master Ying hummed a tune as he sat back at his desk and started to go through the company’s documents…
In the virtual space, Su Yang got dressed, got off the bed, had a meal, and washed up. Then, he walked to the basement of the castle, where the dungeon was located.
Since Gru and Dagger Girl moved out of the dungeon and the virtual space got upgraded, the dungeon was restored to its original gloomy and dark appearance.
As Su Yang walked down the stairs, he arrived at the entrance of the dungeon, where there were four keys with names written on them.
Su Yang took the key from Wang Jue’s cell and walked into the first dungeon passage.
The first dungeon passage was the most ordinary dungeon, which could only prevent ordinary living beings from escaping. However, since Wang Jue and the others didn’t have any special abilities, it was just the right place to imprison them.
Wang Jue’s cell was located at the innermost part of the prison. Hence, Su Yang walked through the tunnel to Wang Jue’s cell and casually opened the cell’s door.
Inside, when Wang Jue saw the door being opened, he rushed to the door and wanted to run out. However, the moment he reached the door, a bright light suddenly burst out from the door, followed by a wall of light that appeared out of thin air, bouncing him back.
At the same time, four shackles suddenly popped out from the four corners of the dungeon and cuffed Wang Jue’s hands and feet.
The four shackles were as heavy as five thousand kilograms. After putting them on, Wang Jue’s limbs suddenly hung down. Then, like a dog, he got pinned to the ground on all fours.
When Su Yang was testing the dungeon’s functions, he had already witnessed the power of the dungeon, so the scene before him was not out of his expectations. He strolled in and closed the door behind him. With a wave of his hand, a stool appeared in front of him. After that, he sat there and looked at Wang Jue, who was on all fours.
Wang Jue raised his head and glared at Su Yang. Then, he struggled to stand up and looked at Su Yang. “You’re Su Yang?”
Su Yang nodded. “Yes, I am.”
Wang Jue looked at him and asked, “Do you know who I am?”
Su Yang nodded again. “I do.”
Wang Jue was stunned for a moment. It was obvious that he thought that Su Yang did not know his identity, hence why Su Yang dared to kidnap and imprison him.
Then, Su Yang said indifferently, “You’re Wang Jue of the Wangs in Zhejiang Province. Your father is Wang Jiang, whom many call him the “King Of Zhejiang”. Am I right?”
Wang Jue’s pupils constricted slightly as he said, “Since you already know who I am, why aren’t you letting me go?”
Su Yang burst into laughter. “You’re so naive. Even if you don’t have any brains, you must’ve watched dramas and movies on TV, right?
“So, have you ever seen a kidnapper release a hostage after finding out about their identity?
“Furthermore, you know that I kidnapped you, but the Wangs don’t. So, if I let you go, wouldn’t I be walking right into your trap?”
Wang Jue panicked.
Actually, he was not a brainless person. Ever since he was captured and witnessed Su Yang’s mysterious yet powerful creatures, he knew that Su Yang was not an ordinary person.
Of course, Wang Jue himself thought that he was not an ordinary person, so he felt that he could have a good talk with Su Yang. At the very least, he could clarify his identity and promise to give Su Yang some benefits. Then perhaps, Wang Jue could return to the real world safely.
In fact, Wang Jue thought that if he played his cards right, he might even be able to form an alliance with Su Yang and obtain the miraculous abilities and technologies within Jiadian Group.
‘After all, even if Su Yang is a special “species”, he still needs to live in the real world and earn money. So, he would also need someone to “protect” him. Well, I could provide all these to Su Yang. Otherwise, there’s no need for Su Yang to start a company to earn money.’
However, when Su Yang revealed Wang Jue’s identity, the latter immediately felt uneasy. He felt as if Su Yang had seen right through him, including his trump cards. Furthermore, since Su Yang dared to capture him despite knowing his identity, it was obvious that Su Yang did not care who Wang Jue was.
This was exactly why Wang Jue put on a brave front earlier.
Now that Wang Jue realized his plan had failed, he quickly said, “Actually… I feel like we have a lot we can discuss over. For example, if you let me go, I can give you money.”
Su Yang smiled again. “Are you as rich as I am? In fact, do you think I’m short of money?”
It was only then that Wang Jue recalled that Su Yang was the founder of Jiadian Group. ‘Putting aside the valuation of Jiadian Group right now… Just his glass phone’s company alone is potentially worth one trillion yuan!’
At that thought, Wang Jue’s heart sank bit by bit as he felt his confidence diminish. He then stammered, “We… We… We can give you a lot of support. We can save you a lot of time and effort.”
Su Yang smiled and shook his head. “No need for that, I don’t want to have too much contact with you guys. Besides, I already have the Jiangs supporting me, so it makes no difference if I have you guys or not.”
At that point, Wang Jue no longer had any confidence. His eyes were flustered and his lips were trembling. After a while, as if to dispel the fear in his heart, he loudly said, “Since you don’t want anything I have to offer, why are you here to see me?
“So, you must have a request! Otherwise, why would you even come here to see me?”
Su Yang looked at him calmly and said, “Yes, you’re right, I do have a request. But… You don’t have to give me what I want because I can take it for myself.”
As he spoke, Su Yang placed a small hourglass into his pocket. Then, he patted his leg and stood up. “Also, I’m here to send you off on your final journey.”
“After all… I prefer to see my enemies disappear.”
After he said that, Su Yang left the dungeon and closed the door.
Wang Jue, who was behind him, opened his arms to stop Su Yang. However, the moment he raised his hands, he was pushed down by the heavy handcuffs.
Hence, he could only watch as Su Yang left the dungeon. Then, he waved at Su Yang with his back facing him.
At the same time, a gap suddenly opened on the other side of the dungeon, and a black, thin muzzle reached in.
Wang Jue looked at the muzzle and his face turned pale. He wanted to escape, but he couldn’t move at all.
Up close, blood exploded on the entire cell’s wall…
On the other hand, Su Yang picked up his phone and made a call.
“Clown Sea Serpent, what’s the status of the group of people you bribed and guided?
“I need external support in exchange for time.”
The Clown Sea Serpent said from the other end of the line, “Master, I should be done by tomorrow…”
Su Yang replied, “Okay, I’ll be waiting.”
On the second floor of the Wangs’ villa in Hangzhou…
Wang Jiang sat at the desk and looked at the uniformed man. “How’s the investigation going?”
Sweat dripped from the uniformed man’s head. “We… We still haven’t found anything.”
Wang Jiang looked at him and said in a dignified manner, “Is someone stopping you?”
The uniformed man quickly said, “No, Shanghai has been very cooperative. They’ve given us a lot of authority to check all of their surveillance cameras, phone records, bank records, and chat history.
“But… There’s nothing unusual.”
Wang Jiang looked at him and asked in a low voice, “There’s nothing?”
The sweat on the uniformed man’s forehead increased. “Yes. Wang Jue has done many things in secret this time, so all of the records turned up normal. I don’t know why he went to Shanghai this time, nor do I know what his purpose was.
“All I know is that he left in a hurry the night he disappeared, as if he found out something bad was going to happen to him. So, he drove away with his three bodyguards.
“Later, I saw him in some of the cameras, including one on the Sea Bridge.”
Wang Jiang asked, “He just left all of a sudden? He didn’t receive any phone calls that night?”
The uniformed man nodded. “Yes, there are no phone records.”
Hearing this, Wang Jiang slowly tapped his fingers on the table…
