Chapter 359 Li Ao in Jiangbei City
Nalan Wuxia was on duty today. She just got a call about a big fight. When she arrived, she saw many gangsters and a man and a woman lying all over the ground, and Qin Haodong holding a kid standing beside. She also noticed that the man and woman had been beaten so badly that she could no longer see their appearances.
Qin Haodong explained, “This is a criminal gang. They steal children to beg for money and committed other crimes.”
Tang Tang came over, took Nalan Wuxia’s hand, and called, “Third Mama, these are bad guys. They didn’t feed the little boy enough food, but fed him medicine. You must arrest them.”
Nalan Wuxia looked embarrassed. Although Tang Tang often called her Third Mama, Lin Momo was not present at that time. Now Tang Tang’s mother was present, Nalan Wuxia felt a little embarrassed.
However, Lin Momo didn’t change her expression very much. She came over and said, “Sister Nalan, I’ve recorded what happened. I’ll send you the video now.”
Then she sent Nalan Wuxia the video of the squat man confessing to the crime.
“Thank you, Sister Momo.”
Nalan Wuxia and Lin Momo both knew about each other, but they got nervous when facing each other.
Turning to the policeman behind her, Nalan Wuxia order, “Take all these people back to the police station for questioning.”
“Officer, you must punish these beasts. Make them go away for life…”
“Being sentenced to prison is not enough to atone for their sins. The two principal criminals should have been shot for five minutes…”
“This kind of scum should be sentenced to death, or they will continue to harm the people after they get out…”
Onlookers expressed their displeasure at the perpetrators. Then Qin Haodong set the kid down on the bench next to him and gingerly stabbed him with silver needles to comb his damaged meridians with his Green Wood Genuine Qi.
After a few minutes, the child opened his eyes and began to cry.
Someone in the crowd said, “The child must be hungry. How evil these human traffickers are!”
“These damn human traffickers used this kid to make money, but they don’t feed him well. They even tried to save the money of milk powder…”
At this time, a middle-aged woman came over and delivered a nursing bottle, saying, “Young man, this is the milk powder I brought for my son. It’s still warm. Feed the child.”
Lin Momo, who was more experienced in raising children, took the bottle and felt the temperature. Then she began to feed the boy.
The child was really hungry. When he felt the pacifier, he immediately gulped it down. Soon, he drank all the milk from the bottle, then opened his big black eyes and looked around curiously.
Qin Haodong told Nalan Wuxia, “Since the kid was stolen by these human traffickers, I’ll leave him to you. I hope you find his birth parents soon.”
“Okay, I see.”
Nalan Wuxia took the baby and turned to get into the patrol wagon. By this time the squat man and those gangsters had been taken away by the police, and the crowd began to scatter.
As Qin Haodong, Lin Momo, and Tang Tang strolled along, Lin Momo looked grave and thoughtful.
Qin Haodong asked, “What? Do you still think of that?”
Lin Momo stopped and said, “I don’t understand. They are able-bodied and capable of working. Why don’t they work hard on their own instead of kneeling down and exchanging their dignity for charity? Is their dignity worth so little?”
Qin Haodong said, “Well, it’s easy to understand. Everyone has their own view. The world is such a big place, and there are always people who love leisure and hate labor. They are so lazy that they want to get something for nothing. Dignity and face are important to us, but in their eyes they are worthless.”
Tang Tang was vaguely aware of their conversation and asked, “Papa, did they really steal that little boy?”
Qin Haodong replied, “Yeah, there are always some bad guys in this world who like stealing kids, so you have to be careful in the future. Don’t eat food from strangers or walk with them.”
Tang Tang nodded vigorously. “Yes! Tang Tang is the most obedient!”
Lin Momo said, “These traffickers really deserve to be hacked to death. When they stole one child, they had destroyed several families. They steal the child and don’t treat him like a human being. They don’t even feed him well.”
Qin Haodong said, “We can’t help it. It’s not uncommon in Huaxia. These people take advantage of people’s sympathy for children, so they steal children to use as begging tools. They even disabled some of the children, making them more miserable, because it is easier to win people’s sympathy.”
“So, sometimes, when we show our kindness to others, we should tell whether they are cheaters or not. Otherwise we’re doing bad guys a favor.”
Lin Momo nodded and said, “I get it!”
Today’s event is not only a lesson for Tang Tang, but also a lesson for Lin Momo, who was always on top of the world. It gave her a new understanding of the darkness at the bottom of society.
After experiencing this incident, the three people lost interest in continuing to play. They directly drove back to the Lin’s Villa. Just after dinner, Qin Haodong’s phone rang. It was Long Haisheng.
After pressing the answer button, Qin Haodong said, “Brother Long, what’s up?”
It took a fight for Qin Haodong and Long Haisheng to get know each other. Although Long Haisheng was in the underworld, he could always keep the bottom line of being a human, which made Qin Haodong respect him very much, and also had a good impression on him.
“Brother Qin, can you come to me? Dafei’s been hurt, and I want you to treat him.”
“Dafei was hurt? Well, I’ll be there now.”
Qin Haodong was slightly taken aback by the news. Dafei was Long Haisheng’s number one fighter who possessed powerful cultivation. Besides, Jiangnan City belonged to Long Haisheng’s place. How did Dafei get hurt? Who hurt him?
After hanging up, he drove straight to Long Haisheng’s house. Long Haisheng’s house was guarded by nervous bodyguards with guns. These bodyguards all knew Qin Haodong, so when they saw him, they let him pass.
When he entered the room, Qin Haodong found Dafei, normally as strong as an ox, lying on the sickbed, his face pale. His left arm had been completely broken, and the right side of his chest had collapsed slightly, which indicated that his sternum had been broken. He coughed from time to time, and spat a lot of blood foam.
At the sight of Qin Haodong coming, Long Haisheng rushed up to meet him and cried, “Brother Qin, you’re here at last. Treat Dafei!”
Qin Haodong nodded, went to Dafei’s bed and put his hand on his pulse.
When he saw Qin Haodong, Dafei wanted to say something, but as soon as he opened his mouth, he spat another big spout of blood.
“Hold your tongue. Don’t worry. I’m here. You won’t die even if you want!” Qin Haodong soothed him and put a healing elixir in his mouth.
The elixir immediately melted in his mouth, and soon Dafei felt some coolness in his chest and the pain eased. In addition, he stopped coughing up blood.
Qin Haodong reached out and pulled Dafei’s top open. There was a big black print on his chest. He frowned. This was the Blackening Palm.
Long Haisheng asked nervously, “How’s Dafei, Brother Qin? I thought he was too badly hurt to be treated at the hospital. I can only ask you to treat him.”
Indeed, when he saw Dafei looking miserable, Long Haisheng’s first thought was that only Qin Haodong could save him.
“Don’t worry. It’s nothing serious!”
Qin Haodong took out the needle bag and began to treat Dafei’s injuries with acupuncture. Soon more than 20 silver needles were inserted into some of the important acupuncture points in his chest.
Next, he had Dafei’s broken sternum and broken arm reset. 20 minutes later he removed the needles from his chest.
“Well, stay in bed for three days, and don’t fight for 10 days. You’ll be all right after that.”
“Doctor Qin, thank you for saving my life!”
Dafei said gratefully.
He knew the full extent of his injuries. He could almost feel the smell of death. If Qin Haodong hadn’t treated him, his life would have been gone.
“You’re welcome. Have a good rest!”
Qin Haodong turned to Long Haisheng and asked, “What happened, Brother Long? Who hurt Dafei?”
Judging from the slap on Dafei’s chest, Qin Haodong could preliminarily judge that the man who hit him had entered the threshold of cultivating internal strength. But there were not many people at such a level in cultivation in Jiangnan City. How did Long Haisheng get into trouble with this kind of powerful people?
Long Haisheng sighed and responded, “It’s a long story. Brother Qin, do you still remember the killer we met at Ouyang Shanshan’s concert last time?”
Qin Haodong replied, “Of course. Does this have anything to do with the killer?”
Long Haisheng said, “After interrogation, we learned that the killer was from Jiangbei City.”
“Jiangnan City and Jiangbei City face each other across a river. The leader of underworld gang is Li Ao. Although he and I both dominate the underworld, our behavior styles are very different. I always have my limits. In my eyes, some things can be done, while some can’t. Li Ao has no limits. He would do anything as long as there’s enough profit.”
“Like the drug dealing. I absolutely do not allow drugs to appear in the underworld of Jiangnan City. But Li Ao is obsessed with making a fortune on drugs. He continues to expand market in Jiangbei City, and also want to put drugs into Jiangnan City. Then the last assassination happened because I refused it.”
Qin Haodong asked, “Did he send a killer this time?”
“Not a killer, but a master!” Long Haisheng said. “Li Ao was quiet for a long time after his last failure, but this time I don’t know where he found a master. This person is named Chen Hu. He is very arrogant and cruel.”
“After Chen Hu came to Jiangnan City, he first gave me a letter of challenge, telling me clearly that he would hit three of my places every day, at 10:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. respectively, and even marked the places. He also threatened to fight until I give in and withdraw from Jiangnan City.”
Qin Haodong frowned and uttered, “He’s so arrogant!”
“That’s what I thought at first, but then I realized this guy was really powerful!” Long Haisheng sighed and went on, “I sent 30 people to the first place, but they all defeated by Chen Hu within one move.”
“At four o’clock this afternoon, he went to smash the second one. I sent Dafei over. You’ve seen the result. Dafei was beaten by his three moves and nearly died. He smashed my place to pieces.”
Qin Haodong asked, “Don’t you ever think about calling the police, Brother Long? However arrogant he may be, he doesn’t dare confront the authorities. Isn’t it?”
Long Haisheng shook his head and said, “Brother Qin, you don’t know the rules of our underworld.”
“Anyway, I’m the number one in the underworld, so the rivalry between Li Ao and me is about underworld. If I ask the authorities for help, the whole underworld will laugh me off. Even if Chen Hu is arrested by the police, I will not be able to stand in Jiangnan City anymore.”
“Knowing this, Li Ao sent Chen Hu alone.”
Qin Haodong nodded and said, “In that case, Brother Long, I’ll go with you to where Chen Hu is going at 9:00 p.m. and deal with him.”
He decided to help Long Haisheng because he respected Long Haisheng’s belligerence and he was very resistant to drugs.
